Nice sound on this one..Yeah 86 was a strange year and they still had some of that magic that happened in 85 in these early shows..then as Jerry's health went down towards summer, so did the music~! I remember RFK 86 and how unhealthy he looked and gasping for air..wasn't pretty..I like this show with the China>Rider to kick it off and a solid 1st set..But boy oh boy..how often would you see a 2nd set like this..sweetness~~! GIVE IT A WHIRL..Forever Grateful>Forever Dead

Weirdness. 1986 is pretty unfamiliar territory for me (save a few shows here and there) when it comes to the good ol' Dead - decided to give this one a shot, and this source really is enticing - a Hunter Seamons matrix of a 24-bit Charlie Miller remaster? Giddy-up!

Set 1 comes dangerously close to flying off the rails at times, but the boys let us know they are indeed in charge. Jerry's voice goes through all the stages - sugar-sweet, then Nashville Skyline-croon, then just plain ol' hoarse by the time the set concludes. Minglewood is a pow-wow of craziness, but the gold star here is that Bird Song > MNS; listen to how hard they *dig* into that jam on the latter!

Set 2 is one of those sets that can be off-putting for a lot of deadheads, and I can totally see why...I myself love it. I've come to love successful variations on traditional sets. This one, with the Nevilles for about half, is quite percussion-heavy - the Iko and Eyes are just on the verge of being played almost out of tune, slightly *bent*, even dark. "Blame" the Nevilles for that one, but I think this is absolutely cool. Truckin' has Healy delightfully fooling around with Jerry's guitar for a good couple of minutes or so into the band's post-Space reconstitution, and Stella barely hands on....oh man, what a fragile rendering this is - the whole time you're convinced this thing is going to just fall apart!

The encores here are pretty special, again with the Nevilles playing around with the boys - that Bo Diddley is just *FUNKED OUT!* This track is worth the entire set, IMHO.

Shows like this make me wonder if there are any other buried gems in '86 that I'm missing. Probably. I'm familiar with that famous May Frost show, and of course the 12/15 return of Jerry. Any others that get you giddy?
